It’s time for bed, but Stella has an important trip to make first. After she brushes her teeth, she climbs aboard her rocket ship and zooms off into space in search of adventure. She’s bouncing on the moon when her dad’s voice comes over the radio: EARTH TO STELLA: NO JUMPING ON THE BED! Stella lifts off again, this time traveling even deeper into space. But after a while she loses contact with Earth. What’s happening back on her home planet?

Kid-friendly, cute-as-a-button illustrations complement this humorous story about a girl with her head in the cosmos and a dad ready to bring her back down to Earth. This delightful father-daughter story will spark the imagination of any young explorer and is a charming choice for Father’s Day.
